“Wonderful”
Reviewed October 13, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We have just returned from a fantastic and relaxing 7 night stay in this beautiful villa. Having two very energetic sons, the outdoor space sold this villa for us and upon arrival it didn't disappoint. The grounds are maintained to an extremely high standard with the patios and pool area in spotless condition. We ate breakfast outside every morning. The electric gates made us feel extremely safe, albeit that the area is very quiet and secluded anyway. The living area was fantastic and we made use of the open fire each evening. There is nothing better than watching the glow from an open fire. The main bedroom was large and airy with a lovely bathroom. Our boys used the second bedroom and found it comfortable and loved going straight to the pool via the patio doors. The kitchen facilities were great too with all the crockery, cutlery and other utensils you would need. Helen, who met us upon arrival was extremely friendly and helpful and showed us round the house. We had an issue with one of the toilets but Helen arranged for to be sorted within 12 hours of us contacting her. We paid extra to have the pool heated and it was worth every cent, it made all the difference. We have rented quite a few houses over the past couple of years and I can honestly say that overall this house has been our best rental yet. We will be back.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed July 14, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Lovely house and pool. Nice location but more out of town than we realized but easy drive. Comfy beds and pillows. House and grounds very clean and well kept. Our only comment but not a complaint, we would have liked some plastic glasses for the pool and patio. Helen met us and was very friendly and helpful. Thank you.

Reviewed June 7, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Just returned from Portugal after spending 2 fabulous weeks with the family at the Villa Cashina to celebrate my sister Carole's 70th birthday. We had a a lovely surprise when Helen, the villa manager, turned up with a birthday cake for Carole from all the management and staff from Villasduma. The villa was very well equipped, spacious and light, the gardens are well kept. The cleaning staff are very efficient and friendly. I would recommend this villa to anyone interested in renting a villa in a quiet location. Helen is very friendly and very helpful.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed February 5, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Beautiful and secure property and location. Both the owner Nuno and the host Helen were extremely accomodating, Helen in particular was wonderfully helpful and such a nice lady.

Property was well equipped with lovely open fire and large pool (too cold to use in January).

Very nice stay indeed. Thank you.

We have just returned from a family holiday with our grandchildren - the villa is excellent and even better than the photos and is very well equipped with everything you need. The pool is lovely very clean and well maintained. One of the best holidays we have had and I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa in fact we are hoping to go back later in the year.

“Family Holiday”
Reviewed May 1, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Villa is in a quiet location and was just perfect for our family holiday. Short walk across a field to shops or short drive. The accommodation was spacious and the layout worked for us. The local beaches and restaurants were great. Belita the villa manger was very helpful and kind. Would love to go back soon.

“Very relaxing family getaway”
Reviewed February 17, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Have just returned from 5 days in Portugal having stayed at the Villa Casinha, the only thing this Villa couldn't deliver was the weather. I travelled with my husband and three children aged 6, 8 and 11 and as you can imagine the free wifi and SKY TV were a godsend especially at night. It was great being able to let the children play in the pool without trying to identify them from all the other children using a hotels pool, not to mention the adults. The villa itself was very spacious and spotless and of a standard were we could relax with 3 children running around. While there are other villas within the immediate vicinity the spacious and immaculate grounds gives an impression of isolation and seclusion . The villas is a 10 minutes walk into the town across a field and dirt track and would probably be challenging for people with walking difficulties or very young children, the beach is a further 15 minutes but well worth a visit and given the time of year we were the only ones on it. The town has a decent supermarket and a lovely bakery/cafe which we visited every day, a cheese toastie was only 2 euro. I have to admit we didn't explore much as the children really loved the pool, though Albuferia is a short bus journey away. I have to say in terms of the villa management I couldn't have asked for better, Bélita was always available to take calls to answer any questions we had, she also organised the transfers to and from the villa from the airport which removed any stress from that perspective. This was our first time renting a villa and having had such a lovely experience it won't be our last.
